Up the MacGregors! (Italian: ''Sette donne per i MacGregor'', a Technicolor film in Techniscope also known as 7 Women for the MacGregors) is a 1967 Italian spaghetti western directed by Franco Giraldi (here credited as Frank Garfield). It is the immediate sequel of Seven Guns for the MacGregors, still directed by Giraldi.[1] The film has the same cast as its predecessor except for Manuel Zarzo and Robert Woods, who refused the role due to his conflicts with the leading actress Agata Flori,[1] the wife of producer Dario Sabatello.

Plot summary[edit]

The movie began with the elder MacGregors waking up in the middle of the night to take out a chest of gold ingots and coins from the hiding place and bury it outside their house while being secretly watched by a bandit spy.
On the day of the engagement party between Gregor MacGregor and Rosita Carson the bandit Maldonado, with his gang, came and robbed the MacGregors of their gold which the elder MacGregors buried. They left a note, purporting to be from Frank James, in the hole where the chest of gold was buried. So, the MacGregor brothers throw themselves in pursuit of Frank James. When they found Frank who is now a run down old man, they are told that he was framed by Maldonado. So, they set out again but this time to find Maldonado.
Upon finding out that Gregor has gone with the traveling medicine man and his daughter, Dolly, to Maldonado's hide out, Rosita out of jealousy ride out to confront Dolly; ending up being kept as a prisoner of the outlaws together with Gregor who came back to rescue her after he and his brothers managed to regain the stolen gold. The other MacGregor brothers also came back to Maldonado's hide out to rescue Gregor and Rosita.They escaped but are later trapped in an empty cargo train wagon. Soon they are rescued by their parents, the Donovans, a band of Apaches, and other cowboys. During a fight with Gregor Maldonado fell off the engine when the engine crashed into a stationary train cargo wagon and is killed by the run away engine.
